1848 : Clocking In


LINDLEY CLOCK TOWER, HUDDERSFIELD : An inscription above the door reads "erected by James Nield Sykes Esq JP of Field Head, Lindley, for the benefit of the inhabitants of his village" It was built in 1902, and, at the time, the word was that it was erected to make sure the villagers arrived on time at Sykes' nearby Acre Mills.
